Why do I talk about my family on a blog about running? Because family is everything. Running is great and finding your passion in life is so important, but when it comes down to it, you have to care for the people around you and offer what you can. You can accomplish some of the greatest feats in the world but if you’re not helping change other’s lives for the better then what have you really accomplished? I believe we are here to look out for each other and we all have something we can offer. If we can dig deep enough, we all have light that we can shed. So get out there and make others feel like a somebody!
My Mom and Dad are great examples to me. They provided us kids with everything we needed and set us in the right direction, and they continue to be a rock in my life. My childhood was full of laughter and fond memories. I also have one older brother and two younger sisters, and many aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins that fully support me and I know are there for me when I need them.
